COMMUNITY DIRECTORY

Take full advantage of the On Deck experience

The Community Directory is your portal into the people that make up the On Deck ecosystem. With thoughtfully crafted profiles that reveal the who behind the what, members find On Deck as their first and only stop when looking for someone with the right background, insight, or relationships to help them achieve their goals.

@beondeck custom built a directory to find fellows and alumni in a super structured way and it's the best implementation I've seen so far. None of the other alumni networks I'm a part of has this rigor/structure/functionality

Access top talent

Our Transitions programs like On Deck First 50 are full of people looking for their next roles, and companies comming out of our Founder and Scale programs are always looking to hire. Our Talent Hub connects the two by highlighting and showcasing the talent looking for what’s next.

Before @beondeck, I have an idea. After @beondeck, I have 1 cofounder, 2 engineers helping, 3 potential pilots, insights from 20 user interviews, and a 3-months roadmap.

Gratitude to @Sam Massari & @Ellise McDonald who I met 1:1 in curated matchmaking this week and the last! Sam and I spoke about life as rootless wanderers - immensely comforting and relatable discussion. Ellise and I swapped notes about our first time in fundraising as CoS and navigating our way through!

Has anyone here recently raised a pre-seed that was oversubscribed? I have a few questions i’d like to chat about in terms of round composition, negotiating & how to handle valuation.

Some last few things...

Our incentive = your success

Our community-centered business model means we don’t have to rely on ads — just making sure you meet your goals.

Distraction free

We want you to engage with the platform in the way that it’s helpful; to be an accelerant on your journey, not a distraction.

Spirit of Service

Our platform serves the tightly knit On Deck Ecosystem; a give-first mentality is what makes this special. Be thoughtful!
